New life breathed into Donizetti’s lost opera

‘Mark Elder is a conductor who really understands how to let Donizetti breathe’ 


‘It’s Joyce El-Khoury as Sylvia, the King’s mistress, and David Jonghoon Kim’s Leone, the young man in love with her, who steal the singing honours. Their last act duet when all that awaits them is death or a monastery could wring tears from a stone’



Joyce El-Khoury, David Junghoon Kim, Laurent Naouri, Vito Priante, Evengy Stavinsky; Chorus & Orchestra of the Royal Opera House/ Mark Elder

Opera Rara ORC58  156:03mins (2 discs)
